[Bf-committers] Blender tracking zoom solver

Hi Hermann,

It is great that you are working on solving some of these problems.
My main concern is the zoom shots, sometimes you have a shot that
starts with a 30mm lens and ends up with a 50mm.
Right now the only way is to track the entire shot as if it was a
30mm, or you can track it twice one for 30mm and another for 50mm
and then combine manually both tracks but this is not a good way, is
not accurate and it causes extra work.
Almost all the 3D tracking softwares has the ability to solve the
tracking with a fixed lens or with a variable lens (zoom)
Blender only solves shots with fixed lenses which is a shame because
then you cannot uses it for some shots when zoom is part of the shot.

Looking forward to see if you can integrate your zoom solver into trunk! :-)
